IT Entry Knowledge and Skills of University Teachers vis-a-vis their Interest Levels: The Case of the Oldest University in Asia
de Guzman, Allan B.; Vizconde, Camilla J.
Asia Pacific Education Review, v5 n2 p207-214 2004
Technology, considered as the new language of teaching and learning, is an irrevocable reality. Any institution of higher learning is expected to look into the future without losing sight of its core capabilities--the malleability of its faculty members. Today, more than ever, teachers are expected to operate in an environment where "hiteach", "hi-touch" and "hi-tech" govern their instructional behaviors. It is in this light that this study was conducted to situate teachers coming from a time-tested institution, such as the University of Santo Tomas, the oldest university in Asia, in terms of their IT knowledge, skills, and interests with a view to identifying implications on how faculty development programs may be made more responsive to the present-day educational structure.
